Two Rivers Fall Wildlife Festival Canceled

I just got off the phone with Cassandra at Two Rivers Refuge. She was calling to let me know that the Fall Wildlife Festival is canceled due to flooding.  The Gilbert Lake parking lot is flooded and the water is coming up towards the Swan Lake Headquarters.

This picture is from the Two Rivers Facebook account and was taken by R. Dietrich, USFWS

The Brussel’s Ferry is still in operation but if you are thinking about using it you might want to call or visit IDOT’s Road Closure page
